how is it going?
I wanted to write this review for such a long time but somehow I always felt like writing about other things. Now it's finally here:
Warning: contains pretty gross pictures of shedding skin on feet
What they say:
The foot peeling liquid removes foot calluses from rough feet fast and conveniently.
Ingredients such as AHA and BHA help remove excessive foot calluses, and peppermint extracts relieve stress from feet.
Couldn't find any, will look for them when I'm home again.
The contents of the package: "socks" for your feet, the peeling liquid and a foot cream. I like that they included a foot cream for aftercare. Makes me feel like they actually think about their customers and care about them.
My feet before using the peeling. As you can see I have quite some callused parts. Especially around the big toe and the heel. This is due to a malposition of my feet. No matter what I try to remove callused skin, it always comes back after a few days. While it's nothing tragic, I don't like it because neither does it look nice nor does it feel nice.
That's why I really wanted to try a foot peeling.
How to use: you put on those quite weird looking socks (they are plastic on the outside and have some cloth on the inside) and pour in the liquid. The liquid is cold so if you have sensitive feet, prepare for a little shock. Then you can fasten the socks at the top part. They were surprisingly comfortable. It does feel kind of strange because your feet will soak in liquid the whole time but it wasn't too bad. You can walk, although that feels really funny. You could theoretically lie down but I would advise sitting so the liquid can evenly work its magic on the whole foot.
The peeling liquid neither stung nor felt uncomfortable in any other way.
Then you leave the socks on for 1-2 hours. This is perfect for a lazy day off so you can relax, watch dramas, watch Animes, surf websites, write your blog (:p), etc.
After the waiting time you wash off any residue and rub the cream on your feet. At first I didn't see any changes.
The magic starts after a few days.
|after 5 days|
One of the hardest things is that you are not supposed to peel off this loose skin. So you will have loose skin hanging off your feet. And I'm one of those people who will always peel off loose skin. It was really hard for me to resist this urge!
|after 7 days|
The interesting thing is that the loose skin was hardening pretty fast in my case and I didn't have any weird gummy like parts hanging around.
I did feel like a snake XD
|after 20 days|
The shedding lasted a bit longer for me than indicated on the package (2-3 days) but that was maybe because my feet were pretty callused to begin with.
I was very hay with the result. The calluses returned after a while but I was longer callus-free than with any other method.
I will definitely do another foot peeling. For now I purchased one from It's skin but I would definitely recommend the TonyMoly one.
Pros: was quite comfortable, removed most calluses, sample of foot cream
Cons: didn't remove all calluses
